Dark Fish On Brain Coral
Dark Fish On a Plate Coral. I suspect this is from the Fungia genus, but I'm really guessing.

One Arm Red Crab

I wonder how much chance this little guy has. From the black tips, I guess
this is a Red Crab.

Species: Cancer productus (red rock crab)

Female Bird Wrasse

This was at Kahalu'u Beach - the fish seem very tame. This is a smaller fish and
didn't school.

Species: Gomphosus varius (birdfish, bird wrasse)

Schooling Fish
Three different species all hanging out together - how nice. It's seems to me that the larger black fish defeats the camouflage of the smaller lined fish (silhouetting them), but I guess that's a little difficult for the fish to figure out.

The fish with the vertical bars are called Convict Tang's (Acanthurus triostegus). The larger black fish are probably Ring Tail Surgeonfish (Acanthurus blochii) but the photo is quite low quality.

Species: Acanthurus triostegus (convict surgeonfish, convict tang)

Scene With Fish

The bright fish in the foreground is cool, but as you look into the scene you see another, and then another fish.
It must not be that hard to camoflage in this environment, so the decision to use something like
bright white and yellow, must have some biological advantage.

Species: Chaetodon auriga (threadfin butterflyfish)

Yellow Fish
bluestriped butterflyfish - Chaetodon fremblii - just another fish swimming by.

Fish Tank Fish
Just like you would see in Nemo!
Species: Zanclus cornutus (Moorish idol)

Keeltail needlefish
I suspect this is a Keeltail needlefish - Platybelone argalus but this is such a lousy picture.

Schooling Fish

Coming, going, you tell me - these fish (like me) were being dragged in the current and (unlike me) stopping
on each ebb to chew one whatever was on the rocks.

Cornet Fish

These fish just hang out on the bottom in the flow.  From a distance, they look like some sort of grass just dragging in the current, but they are live.

Species: Fistularia commersonii (reef cornetfish)

Yellow Eyed Fish
This is a pretty distinct looking fish but I had to no luck looking it up.

Yellow Fish Swimming By
I believe this is a Lemon damsel - Pomacentrus moluccensis.
Species: Pomacentrus moluccensis (Lemon Damsel)

Sea Urchins Grazing
I'm pretty sure this is Diadema Genius. I'm less sure about setosum but it does match what I'm seeing on the internet. At the time, I thought these were feeding on the coral but from what I've read, they feed on algae.
Species: Diadema setosum (Setosum Spined Urchin)
